According to the NHTSA, one person out of every three can expect to be injured at some point in life in a car accident. The NHTSA reports that throughout the world 50 million people are injured in traffic accidents each year.

Does your car have a vehicle defect?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has set standards that car manufacturers must meet to receive a crashworthiness rating for different types of crashes.
Vehicles are tested for their performance in frontal collisions, side-impact crashes and rear-impact crashes.
Crashworthiness cases typically involve injuries sustained as a result of a defect in a vehicle, something that is often overlooked after a car accident. Three types of product defects can lead to injury:
- Manufacturing defects: Where injury occurs when there is a flaw in the manufacturing process. For example, failure to include an airbag when the design calls for it is a manufacturing defect.
- Design defects: Where injury occurs when a vehicle is unsafe because of the manufacturer's design. For example, a fuel tank placed in a location that makes it likely to explode upon impact is a design defect.
- Failure to warn: Where injury occurs when the manufacturer is aware of a dangerous aspect of a vehicle but fails to warn or provide adequate warning to consumers.
